    I think pound for pound lists are pointless anyway... I'm not offended by jones being ahead of st. Pierre because I think he's proven himself against as good of competition if not better. It's an abstract concept anyway, it not fully governed by stats or facts so its open to opinion and speculation. That's just my 2c. Pound for pound lists are pointless

    Sonnet where's Sonnen?

    UFC promo, " the number 2 ranked pound for pound fighter is fighting the number.......well some dude. We thought he was ranked by how he talked and even assured us that he was a champion already." Lol

    I also get a kick out of how Sonnen isn't listed at all, MW or LHW, and he's the next title challenger XD

    sonnen can't be ranked at LHW, he has zero wins at 205. He's not fighting at MW anymore, so he can't be ranked at MW.

    I guess we should be happy that whomever came up with the list didn't cross that line and start ranking Evans as a top 3 MW, Pettis as a top 3 FW, etc.

    But the list itself is hilarious.
